The former Dawson’s Creek star was never interested in kids until he became a dad in September — and now he’s hooked!
James Van Der Beek admits he’s so smitten with his new daughter, Olivia, that he volunteers to change her dirty diapers just so he can spend more time with her. “I’m handling diaper duty like a pro. I enjoy it. It’s my time to bond with her,” he coos.
The 33-year-old actor, whose wife Kimberly Brook gave birth to their first child on September 25, tells WENN, “Other people’s kids were never that interesting and all of a sudden you have your own and they’re just endlessly fascinating.”
He even wishes he could take over Kimberly’s breast-feeding responsibilities, joking, “I can’t breastfeed her as much as I’d like to, so the time I really get is changing those diapers and then just staring at her. She’s completely got me wrapped around her finger.”
